Meet the team: Tommy

We have an amazing team of interns that volunteer their time and passion to making Green Film Fest happen. Each week we'll introduce our new recruits.

Find out more about why Tommy Texeira joined our team.

TommyWhat is your environmental and/or film passion?

I have always been fascinated by the complex relationship between humans and their environment. My environmental passion is understanding the current process in which we get our food. I am passionate about this issue because food is not just an environmental issue, it is a social issue. My passion for film derives from my interest in photography and communications.

Why did you want to join the SFGFF team?

I joined the SFGFF team because I believe in the power of advocacy of the environment through education and engagement. What better way to do that than the power film? I am very excited to contribute to the program anyway possible.

What is your role in the team?

My role for SFGFF team is reaching out to the filmmaking community for film submissions. I enjoy the role because this festival is not just for professional film makers, there is a category for everybody to submit a film. It doesn't even matter if the film was shot with an iphone vs. professional equipment! (Check out our Climate Action Film Contest to find out more)

What are you most excited about for Green Film Fest 2017?

I am most excited to see all the elements of a film festival come together and create a space where like-minded people can engage in meaningful conversation.
